  1. At the start of Chapter 1 in Bravely Default II. Ended up putting the game on this afternoon and mainly did job class grinding in the prologue with the help of Sir Sloan. Got everyone up to level 9 Freelancers for the JP Up passive skill, but inadvertently gained a lot of extra exp and main levels because of it. Oh well, from having played the final demo I know that chapter 1 is going to be a #$*!, so I’d rather be a little overpowered and be able to level up job classes all the faster. Anyway, currently have everyone working on Monk because I remember that being a pretty strong class in
  2. It's not over, but yeah, it's been a bit slow. Sorry, the sudden release of the fan translation of DQM2 caught me by surprise and I dumped more time into that in 2 days than I did Yakuza in 2 weeks. I've enjoyed my time with Yakuza, but being able to play on a PS4 is just something I barely get good time to do. Going to try to keep playing 1-2 nights/week Trying to play Bravely Default 2 right now feels like I’m forcing myself to play it rather than I want to play it, so it’s going on the back burner for awhile. I don’t think it’s bad, but it’s just not clicking with me.
  3. This explains some of what happened with Dark Souls 2. Dark Souls 2 is a very mixed bag of a game. Good ideas, but some poor execution due to changing leads.
  4. Been jumping between non-RPGs, but have been playing more of Bastion again. I’m trying to finally beat this darn game so I can play the other two Super Giant games, Transistor and Hades. Bastion has been good but boy, you need to learn to reflect enemy attacks perfectly to avoid damage. The dodge roll has no invincible frames on it, so it’s kind of useless in combat in my opinion.
  5. Strange of Sword City Revisited: Been playing this one on and off. I’ve had to get reused to some of the mechanics, but the game has been clicking with me again. Currently at the first of three dungeons, the Mausoleum of the Forest, you get to choose between to explore. I forgot this was when the game introduced enemies that are strong to physical damage, so I rearranged my party and brought along a Wizard to help deal with them. Nice thing is that non-active party members can still earn exp and level up, so that’s helpful for team switching.
  6. I hope @Ice Dragon 19comes back too. Anyway, welcome back @redneckpride4ever! Good to see you back on the forums.
  7. If you’re interested in some new Switch RPGs, consider checking out this duo of RPGs for the system:

      Oooooh!  Time to make some room in my lists.

  8. Oooo, so you’re finally starting Grandia 2? I might have to duck out of this topic then Twinkie since I haven’t played it yet but really want to. Want to go in as a fresh as possible after reading your early impressions, so good luck with the rest of your adventure.
  9. Since we’ve managed to do 15 Sidequest episodes, Platty and I decided to do something a little different for the latest episode. We decided we’d just have a friendly chat about our favorite things and some RPGs we’ve been playing lately. Enjoy!

  11. Finished Yakuza Like a Dragon! Very emotional ending, and I have to give Ichiban’s English voice actor credit for his work in the post final battle scenes. Shocking stuff happened before the credits rolled. With Yakuza done and the post game now opened up, looks like I can focus on Bravely Default 2 now. Yakuza was a damn good game, I really enjoyed it. Not sure if I’ll go back and play previous games from the series, but if there are more games starting Ichiban and company going forward I’ll definitely check those games out.
  12. I’m in chapter 15 of Yakuza! Looks the end is in sight since the game called this chapter “Finale,” instead of chapter 15. I had to laugh how chapter 14 ended. It makes it look like Ichiban died, but then the game immediately gives you a brand new summon character as soon as the cutscene ends. Maybe should have saved that for the beginning of chapter 15 so the player gets that feeling of dread something actually did happen to Ichiban. That summon notification immediately killed any mood!
  13. And I was making a joke about how it was word for word the same thing. We can all make jokes, AustNerevar.
  14. Maybe there’s an echo chamber somewhere in this topic?
  15. I’m now on Chapter 14 of Yakuza LaD. Just...holy crap. Lots and lots and LOTS of stuff has happened in the game. I’m really curious to see what’s going to await at the end of the game.
  16. Thankfully managed to beat the Omi Alliance dungeon and beat the bosses at the end. Woo-hoo! After how badly I was destroyed the first time it was much better to be on even footing and not lose half my health to a regular attack. There were some new story details revealed, explaining the actions of Ichiban’s former allies, boss Arakawa FINALLY SHOWED UP AGAIN, and now we’re off to meet up with a former top man in the Omi Alliance family. It was so nice to see Boss Arakawa again and hear good ol’ George Takei voicing him. Got a fair bit of grinding done this morning too. After beating the
  17. Did a lot of grinding in the battle arena and got the party up to levels 48-49. You can get a lot of high end equipment from the lower 10 floors, so I kept running them for equipment and lots of EXP for levels and jobs. Going to try and tackle the Omi Alliance dungeon and bosses again. God, I hope all this grinding will pay off so I can actually continue on with the game.
  18. It’s exactly what it sounds like. You write up about your experience and post it here in this thread. Look at the Bravely Default 2/Yakuza Like a Dragon topic Platty and I have on this part of the den. Anyway, I bought the Sega Ages version of this game on my Switch months ago but have never started it. Got it for $4 and will play it eventually.
  19. I have...for like a year. It’s been an incredibly slow playthrough because I really don’t like to play games on my phone.
  20. The battle arena has definitely been the way to go. Played for an hour tonight and got the party up to level 41-43. Kind of feels like the game REALLY should have pushed you to just do this arena instead of throwing you to the wolves in the Omi Alliance dungeon, but maybe that’s just hindsight or continued annoyance at that sudden difficulty spike. The arena has given me good armor and weapons, but it’s been really boring. The game tries to implement challenges and rules per fight, but I pretty much just kept spamming Ichiban’s 200 MP skill whenever a large group of enemies was present. U
  21. Glad you liked the game! Grandia was a fun experience. Voice acting wise, I’m right there with you on Mullen. His voice acting and Rapp’s voice were easily the worst ones of the entire game. The others were so bad it’s good, but those two...not so much.
  22. The crazy thing is, I’ve had boss fights where the enemies are several levels above mine. They hit harder, but you can still do quite a bit of damage to them so it’s not a huge upset or anything. Boy, this is the first major complaint I’ve had with the game.
